Inside Quality Digest Live for June 16, 2017

Report from Hexagon Live 2017 and two great guests

Published: Tuesday, June 20, 2017 - 11:00

The June 16, 2017, episode of QDL included my hot take on Hexagon’s ginormous user conference as well as interviews with two of our favorite guests, Chad Kymal of Omnex and Kelly Graves of Internal Business Solutions. Take a look:

“Field Report: Hexagon Live 2017”

I and more than 3,000 of my closest friends learned about smart factories and manufacturing intelligence at this one-of-a-kind event. Stay tuned for an expanded look later this month.

“Gartner Announces Rankings of the 2017 Supply Chain Top 25”

Unilever finished first, and Amazon joined Apple and Proctor and Gamble in the “Masters” category, indicating sustained excellence for at least 10 years.

Interview: Chad Kymal

Kymal, the chief technology officer at Omnex, joined us via Skype to chat about strategic planning and ISO 9001. Join us for the webinar he will be presenting, “Risk-Based Thinking in Planning: Using the Business Operating System Approach,” which we are doing together this Tues., June 20, 2017.

Interview: Kelly Graves

Graves, the author of the new book, The Management and Employee Development Review (Productivity Press, 2017), joins us in the studio to chat about the psychology behind employee motivation and personnel development.

Catch us again for another episode of Quality Digest Live this coming Fri., June 23, 2017. You can watch us either on our home page or our dedicated player page. See you there!
